The North Section of the project, along Gilbert Road between Elmbridge Way and Blundell Road, is wrapping up (see map to the left for location). Crews are completing final adjustments and restoration and will be gone from most areas by late January 2021.
Other organizations have active construction projects along Gilbert Road north of Westminster Highway, so drivers and pedestrians may continue to see development activities in this area throughout 2021.
Work continuing near the intersection of Gilbert Road and Granville Avenue
Work will continue at the underground chamber site on Gilbert Road just south of the Granville Avenue intersection into the new year (see inset map for location). The metal hatches that cover this chamber are not quite level with the surface of the road, so crews need to adjust them to make sure they are not noisy when driven over and are safe for snow plows.
We are working to fix this issue as soon as possible. The southbound lanes on Gilbert Road will remain closed near the fenced off chamber area until work is complete. Please use caution and follow the direction of signage and traffic control people.
From December 25 to January 3, remaining construction areas along the North Section will be shut down for the holidays. Crews will be back to work in the area on January 4, 2021.
We know construction can be frustrating; thank you very much for your patience and understanding while we complete this essential sewer project in your community. Happy holidays from all of us at Metro Vancouver!
